It’s The Real McCoy

presented by The Crokey Hill Players Group

The story, set in rural Ireland over two days in 1964, centres on one Madge Molloy – a woman in her mid-60’s – who has lived over forty years of her life wondering why her husband Tom, whom she was married to for just five months, disappeared without trace.  She has been left to rear her only daughter Maura on their small farm and she has become bitter about men in general!  However, the arrival of a new curate to the parish – namely Fr. Michael McCoy - is about to throw light on the circumstances surrounding Tom’s mysterious disappearance and what unfolds on stage has to be seen to be believed! Madge has some serious decisions to make and she has to think on her feet!

This is one play that will have you on the edge of your seat all night and more importantly in tears of laughter.  A story like this could only happen in Ireland!

A Night in November by Marie Jones

presented by Ramor Theatre

Directed by Paddy Farrelly.  Performed by Padraic McIntyre.

When Ulster Protestant, Kenneth McCallister finds himself on the football terraces for a crucial Northern Ireland v Republic of Ireland World Cup qualifying match, little does he know that his hum-drum life is about to change forever.  This production of Marie Jones’ smash-hit one-man show, A Night in November features Padraic McIntyre playing the part of Kenneth, a protestant dole clerk on a search for his own identity.

The play shows how Kenneth deals with his crisis through monologues and soliloquies as well as introducing numerous other characters to interact with, all played by the one actor.   By the end of the play Kenneth travels to New York to support Jack’s Army in the World Cup and he has come to terms with his identity as an Irish Protestant. "I am a free man, I am a Protestant man, I am an Irish man".

Jones’ enduringly humorous and challenging play is both uncomfortable and compelling  as it lays bare the issues of Protestant identity in 1990’s Northern Ireland.   It is the perfect night for a build up to the World Cup 2014. 

Marie Jones's passionate and often hilarious show has enjoyed productions all over the world including the West End and a successful six month run off-Broadway.

Saturday 17 May, 11am - 12.30pm (ages 10-12), €10 (with all materials included)
Saturday 17 May, 1.30pm - 3pm (adults), €10 (with all materials included)

The Dubliners Dilemma based on Dubliners by James Joyce

presented by Bachelor Walk Productions

Described as “mesmerising”, “compelling” and “ingenious”, Declan Gorman's acclaimed solo performance brings the history and the stories of James Joyce's remarkable first book 'Dubliners' to vivid life.

It is 1914. London publisher Grant Richards has determined to re-read Joyce’s manuscript, eight years after rejecting it over fears it might breach British and Irish obscenity laws. As the streets of Dublin and the racy, comic stories of Joyce’s childhood and young adult world spring to life around him, Richards relives his frustrating correspondence with the petulant Irish writer. Should he risk everything second time around and be the one to launch this volatile but brilliant genius on a world about to descend into the madness of war?

To mark the 100th anniversary of the publication of Joyce's first prose work, the performance is accompanied by “The Life of Joyce”, an evocative and entertaining audiovisual presentation celebrating the humour and genius of Ireland's greatest writer and recalling the people and places that Joyce encountered from his Dublin childhood to his early death in Zurich.

“Excerpts from the book come vividly to life. Gorman does it admirably and cleverly.” Irish Times
“A compelling performer… animated and intelligent .” Irish Theatre Magazine

Adapted and performed by Declan Gorman.

Friday 6 June, 8pm, €20/€18 conc.

Declan O’Rourke

He writes the sort of classic songs that people don’t write anymore, songs that sound like they’ve been around forever [...] Listen to Galileo, which is possibly the greatest song written in the last 30 years.” 
Paul Weller, Mojo Magazine (Apr 2012)

Declan O’Rourke has been busy since the long-awaited release of his third studio album, the curiously titled Mag Pai Zai, in April 2011.  With multi-platinum sales under his belt from his first two albums, Since Kyabram (2004) and Big Bad Beautiful World (2007), Declan took time out to reflect and start afresh. 

Declan's songs have been recorded by many artists including Josh Groban, Eddi Reader, The Celtic Tenors, Paul Byrom, and performed by Paul Weller, Camille O’Sullivan and Maura O’Connell amongst others.  He has toured extensively in Europe opening for the likes of Paul Weller, Snow Patrol, Teddy Thompson, The Cardigans, Paulo Nutini, Badly Drawn Boy, Divine Comedy and Paul Brady.

In June 2012, Declan was invited to perform at the Electric Burma gala concert, celebrating Burmese human rights activist Aung San Suu Kyi, alongside Bono, Bob Geldof, Damian Rice, Vanessa Redgrave, and many others.  2014 will see Declan return to the studio for the recording of his highly-anticipated side project of original songs on the Irish Great Famine.
